A Summary of our Salvation
Jesus initiated a process that was not meant to conquer the world
politically. Rather, it was a process whereby His truth and grace would be
proclaimed and those who accept these gifts would be able to come to greater
and more lasting peace. ...
Visitation: When You Need a Helping Hand
Christmas is approaching, and in Luke 1
God gives us a beautiful picture of what it looks like when He gives the gift of
friendship to help us in difficult situations. He joins together a young woman,

The Infant in My Womb Leaped for Joy
O what a novel and wonderful mystery! John has not yet been born but already
he gives voice with his bounds; he has not yet appeared but already he
manifests signs of his presence; he cannot yet cry and already he is heard
through what he does; as yet he has not begun his life and already he is
preaching about God...

"joy" appears so frequently. ...

Not What You Wanted?
God gives grace to the humble. That is, those who humbly submit their
desires to God and trust Him as the sovereign provider of needs are given
grace. Grace is the desire and ability to obey God and respond in a way that

says, "Before destruction a man's heart is haughty, but humility comes
before honor." ...
Close to the Ground - Tax Collector and The Pharisee
Luke's consistent message is, "Thanks to Jesus Christ, everything will be turned
upside down." ... "All who exalt themselves will
be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted." ...
St. Francis of Assisi's Humility
Humility appears to us essentially as truth. "I asked myself one day," wrote
Saint Teresa of Avila, "why the Lord so loves humility and suddenly there
came to my mind, without any reflection on my part, that it must be because
he is total Truth, and humility is truth." ...

we come in humility to take the lowest place, the place of service, he will
come and say to us, "Friend, come up higher." ...
